Will my child support be erased if I file for bankruptcy? 4 Answers as of August 27, 2010

I am a father a 15 year old and a 12 year old. Their mother has physical custody but we share legal custody. The children primarily live with their mother but we have a visitation schedule. We have been divorced for almost 5 years. I have no income because I was laid off from my job. I have accumulated a massive amount of credit card debt and I have also fallen behind on my child support payments. Will my child support payments be erased if I file for bankruptcy?
